Single Serving Recipes: 3 Easy Comfort Foods

I enjoy a really good life. You see, I don't do much of the cooking when The Herbal Husband is around. Now that he has taken a vacation from the snow and cold temperatures, I'm struggling to cook my own single serving food. I do cook once in a while when he is here, but for the most part I get off easy.

So before he left, I got out a gift that my mom gave to me for Christmas in 1978. It is Barbara Swain's Cookery for 1 or 2.

The 70s Christmas gift that keeps on giving.

I have to be honest, I haven't used it much since I was single. When The Herbal Husband and I met, I was honing my cooking skills with a microwave! One tip I remember is that a 10-ounce package of frozen vegetable can be cooked in seven minutes. You don't have to remove the packaging but you do have to remember to take off the foil wrapper, if it has one. Place it on a plate before zapping it. Even this 70s cookbook has a recipe for Chopped Parsley Salad.
